Brexit could cost nearly 500,000 UK jobs: Study

  • Print
AFP, London :
Brexit could cost the UK nearly 500,000 jobs in a worst-case scenario, according to a study published Thursday which was commissioned by the mayor of London.
Britain could lose 482,000 jobs by 2030 if the country crashes out of the European Union, according to research by Cambridge Econometrics.
A scenario in which the UK fails to agree a transition deal and future trading relationship with the bloc would also cost Britain Å“46.7 billion ($62.9 billion, 52.7 billion euros) in investment over the same period.
The report compares four possible post-Brexit scenarios to the option of maintaining the status quo-already ruled out by the British government- of staying in the European single market and customs union.
The most optimistic Brexit scenario outlined, of a two-year transition period leading to single market membership without the customs union would still lead to a loss of 176,000 jobs and Å“20.2 billion in investment.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who campaigned against Brexit, commissioned the study and said the findings show "the potential economic risks-and human costs-at stake in the negotiations" in Brussels.
